Today we’re incredibly excited to unveil the world’s first-ever end-to-end podcasting solution for iPad, complete with a full set of intuitive tools that are perfect for both experienced podcasters and beginners, alike. Not only does this new update let you record on the go, but you can also edit your audio, host all of your files, and distribute your podcast to all major platforms with a single tap (it’s the easiest way to get your podcast on Apple Podcasts). Like Anchor’s mobile apps for iOS and Android, Anchor for iPad is completely free and available right now on the App Store.
Enter Anchor for iPad
With today’s release, we’ve rebuilt our app from the ground up to take advantage of the iPad’s bigger, multi-touch Retina display, and focused on adding in tools that make it possible to create any kind of podcast without the need for other extra equipment or devices.
Touch-enabled editing tools
Anchor for iPad includes the first ever editing tools designed specifically for podcasting. Easily trim the start and finish of your recording without having to go into a heavy editing workflow. This is really convenient in cases where you have some planning or a false start at the beginning of your recording, or a sign-off at the end that you don’t want to include in your podcast (both of which happen almost all the time, especially if you’ve got a cohost or a guest on your show).
You can also split a recording into multiple segments, and use those segments together in one episode or spread across multiple episodes. This makes it really easy to insert transitions, voice messages from your listeners, your jingle, or any other kind of audio right into your existing recording. You can even delete an unnecessary part of your recording by splitting it first. And because of our handy visual episode builder, you can rearrange and organize your segments painlessly — no more forgetting which piece of the waveform was which.
Import audio from any app
If you’re like most podcasters, you’re probably pulling in lots of different kinds of audio for your episodes. You might have a new theme song you just made in GarageBand, a couple of wacky sound effects, an outro song you’ve got stored in Dropbox, and a voice memo hanging around that you want to use for comedic effect. Now, you can import any of those right into your podcast, without having to waste time wondering why in 2018 you still have to email audio files back and forth to yourself across your many devices.
